Reviews for Glacier in West Glacier, MT

RatingCommentsDemographicsCreated
5 StarsExcellent!Words cannot adequately describe the awesome beauty of Glacier National Park. Pictures give you a hint at its magnificence, but it is only when you are in the shadows of these rugged glacier peaks that you will experience the sheer power of God in nature. Even during the height of summer crowds, Glacier is large enough and remote enough for one to find a peaceful trail or pull-off, amongst numerous outside activities including hiking, white-water rafting, horseback riding, camping, motorcycling or exploring. A national gem to cherish, enjoy and share with the world.Middle age male04-22-08
